Ok, first thanks for the HOWTO it was a great and very extremely helpful guide! I had to completely re-install Ubuntu. I then restored by backup that was over 3GB! It worked like a charm twice. (The first time I forgot to use sudo ) so it took about an hour to restore my home partition, and then got to the root, and well, didn't have write permissions. The second time worked like a charm.
Now, my only problem is that my little sound icon by the clock has an ugly x over it. I do have sound, but it gives me this error when I click on it,
If I right click on it and select open I get this error,
The volume control did not find any elements and/or devices to control. This means either that you don't have the right GStreamer plugins installed, or that you don't have a sound card configured.
You can remove the volume control from the panel by right-clicking the speaker icon on the panel and selecting "Remove From Panel" from the menu.
When I attempt to run gst-register it in the terminal I get this
Registry is not present or it is corrupted, please update it by running gst-register
Any ideas? Oh, also I didn't have this problem before my backup. Thanks!
bash: gst-register: command not found
